Uncertain where this was headed while reading, it turned out to be a lovely book in the end. Much to think about. I imagine I will read it again one day. I love the mysterious quality of Ishiguro's writing - something always burbling under the surfac ...more

I'm a big fan of this series - this is the 16th title I've read. At their best the 33 1/3rd books provide historical or social context, analysis, process, and reflection. Sadly, this book does very little of any of those things. With the exception of ...more

I love the idea of the book. Really, I was completely on edge for about 500 pages. But, as sometimes happens for me with Stephenson's books, it bogs down. Too much technical jargon and not enough story. In some books I can get past this - like Snow C ...more
